GLRI Grants: Don’t Have Time? We Do
May 24, 2020 | Maegan Blansett
PlanIT Geo™ can help get your Great Lakes grant project funded, planned, and implemented – Thanks to an agreement with the Environmental Protection Agency, the USDA Forest Service is anticipating up to $4.2 million in federal funding this year (FY2020) for projects that protect and restore the Great Lakes ecosystem. These funds will be made available via grants offered through The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
Projects must fall into one of four categories relating to tree canopy and water quality and must be located within the Great Lake watershed in states of IL, IN, MN, NY, PA, and WI. Eligible applicants include state agencies, local governments, tribal communities, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions.
The grant application deadline is quickly approaching (June 26, 2020) and PlanIT Geo™ can help!
We have provided relevant urban forestry expertise to many similar clients in this region and have a wealth of experience helping organizations win grants, especially when there’s a tight deadline. Some of our past Great Lakes region projects include:
Valuation of the cost of forest pathogens in Milwaukee and an assessment of urban tree canopy in Grand Rapids. We have also contributed to many hydrology-focused projects, such as the South Platte Watershed Natural Capital Resource Assessment and Puget Sound Urban Tree Canopy and Stormwater Management report.
